KDE4 deamon & co running in KDE3 session

Hello, I have Jaunty with both KDE3 and KDE4 installed, as I want to allow 
users to choose either. But when any user starts a kde3 session (even a new 
user; same result with xinit+xterm+PATH=/opt/kde3/bin:$PATH startkde, so it's 
not a kdm4 thing for sure), kde4 services like kdeinit4, kded4, nepomukserver 
and krunner start too.

These are superfluously doubling functionality (krunner vs. katapult) and 
eating memory doing nothing. Users that choose kde3 never use kde4 apps here. 

So, is there a way to avoid running these services?

Thanks, 
Miroslav Los
